Your Editor should Encourage You

I love to code as much as the next developer. I even professed my love in a keynote once. And judging by the fact that you're reading this blog, I bet you love to code too. But in the immortal words of that philosopher, Pat Benatar, Love is a battlefield. There are times when writing code is drudgery. Show More Summary

Turning it off and on again

In The Internet of Things That Used To Work Better I whined about rebooting my stove. This morning I was stuck outside a hotel room waiting for “engineering” to come and reboot the door.

Everything is amazing and I am grateful

Last night I hung out with friends who hadn’t heard Louis CK’s profound rant, everything’s amazing and nobody’s happy. The central character is a guy experiencing WiFi on one of the first flights to offer it. He’s online at 30,000 feet, among the first ever to watch YouTube videos while hurtling across the sky. Then […]

A few weeks ago I spoke at the excellent re:build conference in Indianapolis, Indiana.
